I purchased this product to help me decide when to use our humidifer in the nursery. It is very interesting to check each day and compare it to what I think the humidity/temperature might be. So far the humidity has stayed within the "healthy" range and we haven't had to turn on the humidifier. I like the fact that it also tells the temperature. We live in Michigan where we have cold winters and hot summers. Our nursery is in a corner of the house with cold walls in the winter and the temperature monitor is helpful in knowing when to turn on the heater. I am usually cold and worry that I will be overheating the baby, this way I can keep the temperature within a good range. I actually purchased two monitors, one for my house, and one for my parents (they were curious if their humidity was ok). The monitor I got for my house works wonderfully. The monitor that my parents received did not work. They said it had a temperature of 90 and would only move a few degrees, when they KNEW the temp was only in the 60's. They couldn't tell if the humidity monitor was working since the temp didn't work and the humidity didn't change. (Mine changes a few % through out the day, depending on if the door is open or closed or the temperature, etc.) I think it is a great product, it does what it says, although pretty basic. But, that means there is nothing complicated to figure out. You pretty much set it out and leave it.

Comments about Toys R Us 1001153 Vicks Health Check Monitor:
I bought this to use in my sons room with a humidifier. It was nice to see the humidity level in the room before I used the humidifier. It even shows you what normal levels should be and what levels are good for sick children. Very helpful and very easy to use! I literally took it out of the package, pulled the plastic piece covering the battery and it began displaying within seconds! Great purchase!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Our son was struggling with congestion in his nose from the dry heat in our house. We placed the monitor in each room where he slept and were able to adjust humidifiers as necessary to help him breathe better. The monitor works really well.
Had to be returned
By Autumn's mommy

We brought this home to obviously test the air in our home. I went to open it and it wouldnt work. I took the film off the screen and there were marks like those when you would press on a calculator screen. So I returned it and just received store credit.
It works for now...
from Canaan, NH
Seems to be a common problem, does anyone test these things? the motor starts grinding and grinding... sometimes first turn it on, or at random At night and won't stop until you turn it on and off multiple times. This time It started on the third day of using it. Otherwise everything seems to work fine.... tried two units so far (thinking maybe faulty unit) and always the same problem.
Great product and affordable!
By Kristen the working mom

We have one of these in both of the kids' rooms near the crib. It's really great for tracking the humidity in the room. We run a humidifier in the winter and when the little ones are sick. The bonus is the temperature is displayed also. It's affordable too!
from Apache Junction, AZ
Purchased in oct, 2014. Worked well for the first month, nice, quiet, and worked very well. Then the motor starting making a noise when the unit was turned on. I'd hafto turn it on and off muliple times in order for it to stop making noise. Then last week (jan 15, 2015) the unit just stopped working. I'd turn it on, and nothing. Sometimes I'd see the green light flicker on/off quickly.
You Can See the Mist!
from Tracy, CA
You will not need to wonder if this product is working. You see the mist and smell the amazing Vicks inserts at work. It is easy to clean and easy to ensemble. Perfect for college dorms that are too hot and stuffy. Great for kids who need humidifier relief. Great for vocalist, performers, actors before their big performance.
from Orange, CA
This thermohygrometer is placed in our room where our newborn infant is located to monitor both the temperature and humidity levels. The readings, as far as I can tell, are accurate and reliable.
Easy to Use
from Annapolis, MD
This product has a large clear display. Shows both temp and humidity level. It also tells you the comfort range so you know when to turn on the humidifier.
